Forum: GratefulDead Subject: To my dearest...

Lost Brothers.... Well you know who you are. I must say You were my inspiration through my darkest hour. With out you I can say I would be truly lost in this world. As I write this "Ripple" is being played over the air. Would you hold it near as it were your own? All jokes aside I have lost 3 great friends over the past 2 years and I haven't been right since. I just want to say well I guess I want to say is I got some time to hear your story. I don't know if I can shake it. To tell you the truth this is the first time that I'm speaking about this in public. I miss them. I want them back!!! but I can't have them back in that sence. So what do I do? Drink as heavy as I have been? Run head up and face it? Dance it away? or give it time?

Heres my limb:

From you it comes
on the heart of strum.
It's the season of healing
being awake through
lighting clear motions.
Thier leading us to an open space
in a countless limb of tress.
Towards the blues of infinite range
that a candlelight band plays:
"Our love forevermore."
As we stand, I set the sails of my heart
in those oceanwaves that are rolling in. Seagulls of dreams rest on the edge of your eyes
just overlooking the rain.
Breaking away from heavens line...
the cosmic voyage is of our
entry of the middle way of... Friendship,Kindness,patience and passion and understanding,
to the middle way of...
As it comes
sometimes it seems to be they will
walk with the stars of fate,
in destinys land of space.
It's all coming around ,
The trees are falling down,
are all falling down.

.... cause right now I feel like hell...

I hope today fares ye well. Hang tough man. Time sure will heal the wounds better than drinking. Of course time is the longer fix, drinking the short and surely more harmful fix. Are there others who shared the friendship of the ones you lost? Can you all pull together. While I type a serene Days Between begin. Theres a vibe for sure. I'm copying some shows for a forumite from the 94 and 95 St. Louis shows which I was at after about 13 years of missing them live. Quite interesting shows and setlists. Hadn't looked at these in quite some time. You'll be ok man. Keep reaching out' people will latch on to pull ya up.
